heart. >> john: was for me, too. i really believe that governor romney was so convinced he was going to win because he's been listening to his advisors who live in a bubble. i did feel sorry for him until he came out yesterday and pretty much did a triple axle flip-flop and said screw you 47% but a different 47% all over again. the susan rice controversy which i don't really know if it is a real controversy or if it is just republicans trying to play politics over something. we'll be getting to that as well. the fiscal cliff right now somewhere in america a man named cliff is plotting on killing the coworker who keeps calling him fiscal. finally, secession because really folks why don't you just go overseas and be ignorant there for awhile. i have one rule on secession if you can't spell it, you're not allowed to do it. or am i wrong dan? if you can't spell it, should you be encouraged to do it? >> when you say you want to secede and become part of canada or move to another country where they accept gay marriage,
%. >> and governor jindal was visibly annoyed by mitt romney ease comments. but the question may be, did he do a good job in speaking for republicans, trying to find a way forward? a different way? >> i think governor jindal said all things. the test will come in the months and years about the positions the republican party will have to change. the first test in the fiscal cliff negotiation. are they going to continue to insist that the people at the top who make the most money should not participate in solving the problem. are they going to insist in the beginning of next year when we turn to immigration reform that they're not going to help solve the problem of coming up with a comprehensive immigration reform bill. the problem for the republicans is they have to change positions. when they change positions people in the base will be very unhappy, and it's going to divide the party. but governor jindal is saying all the right things. the questions will be do the actions follow his words? >> also looking back to try to understand what happened during the 2012 election, running mate paul ryan, as you
they confirmed the authenticity of the recording november 14th. quote, governor romney was simply elaborating on what obama senior strais david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's evident to target key demographics, most specifically women. that was the other demographic targeted by the president bought with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are a
to speaking with governor romney, sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways you could work together on this nation's problems have you extended that invitation? has he accepted? and what ways do you think you can work together? >> we haven't scheduled something yet. i think everybody forgets the election was only a week ago. i know i've forgotten, i forgot on wednesday. i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure that governor romney is spending time with his family. and my hope is before the end of the year, though, we have a chance to sit down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. to give you one example, i think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas that i don't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer friendly, how can we make sure that we're consolidating programs that are duplicat
would like to believe that governor romney once he reviews those remarks, will have regret having said them. he doesn't want to become vice president of excuses. but until and unless republicans get in touch with the fact-based world, in particular with science, global warming comes to mind, evolution comes to mind, until they get in touch with this, it's very hard to see how your optimism and my hopes are going to be fulfilled. but hope springs eternal, and with mitch mcconnell, who i think is the key for the republicans, their leader in the senate, that, you know, he was ungracious in the first hours after the election results were known. he has been the lead preacher of the gospel of obstructionism. and if he continues to that, not only will the republican party, i think, find the capital dome sort of, they'll be in a temple of doom if they continue to do this. you just can't do it. with the election itself, this election is going to be studied for a very long time. this is now the 21st century and what president obama did, he hired math wizards and so called stat geeks, and they de
with some republicans, notably former romney surrogate, louisiana governor bobby jindal, who says he absolutely rejects that notion saying it doesn't represent where republicans are as a party. >>> sure we just got done with an election, but warren but havette -- buffet already has his eye on 2016.

think the thing you need to keep in mind about governor romney, a, he's shocked he lost. he really can't quite get over that he lost. he really thought he was going to win. and he's a data driven guy. he's already doing a postmortem going back -- >> data mining. >> trying to figure out what went wrong this is one of the things -- >> mayor, again, it's interesting a money guy, i have always noted the sort of symmetry of politics, people with a little problem with ethics always accuse the others of ethics problems. bought everything he ever got including his highly paid staff in the campaign. everybody was happy with using money on that side. he assumes he must have been outbid. >> that's exactly what someone who thinks he can buy votes was in fact doing. this guy is a salesman, chris. he doesn't know anything about making decisions based on whether or not it's something you believe in. he is of the opinion that money can generate belief, and in this case he doesn't understand how money didn't generate belief, how, in fact, dedication and vision and love dedicated, caused the movement in
with his national finance committee, governor romney said the obama campaign was, quote: very generous to such groups as young voters, african-americans, and hispanics. according to the reporting of the "new york times" he said with regards to young people, for instance, forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. the governor is said to have gone on to say that with regards to hispanic voters, the amnesty for children of illegals, the so-called dream act kids, was a huge plus for that voting group. a member of the u.s. cabinet has apologized for athletic to punch out a reporter in colorado. happened last week when reporter asked ken salazar about the government's wild horse program. he was in colorado to campaign for president obama and he made it clear he was not happy with the question. >> ask me again i will punch you out. don't ever ever from the gazette or anybody else do that to me again. >> you are here as a public figure. >> is he here on his personal time, actually. >> i am here for president obama. i'm talking about the campaign. you want to talk to me about a publi
and not the reason governor romney lost. what's the reaction been like in washington? >> republicans are very disappointed by this, and there are three big reasons. first of all, this is sour grapes, like this certainly isn't gracious. second, it's just not accurate. there were many, many other factors that were involved, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almos
, there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. well, to give you one example i do think that he did a terrific job running the olympics. i would like to get ideas from him and see if there are some ways we can potentially work together. >> stephanie: if it were me, i would would have said with government money. >> but you're not gracious. >> stephanie: i'm a left wing hate monger. as you know. >> according to sean hannity and brian mulroney. >> stephanie: right. >> cry baby sore losers. >> stephanie: let's do compare and contrast. here is mitt romney in a phone call to downers. >> the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition give an extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> e ordinary gifts medicare and social security is stuff we paid into. >> stephanie: i mean really talk like just continuing to be in denial. and it's just so insulting. >> bobby jindal took him to task saying romney was dividing america by speaking like that. >> s
this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in saying that the wealthy should pay their fair share. it'd be nice of some of these moderate thinkers or new thinkers like jindal actually held the republicans who are in power to task a little more instead of kicking the last guy down the road. >> you tweeted this, ana navarro, livid at romney saying obama won because offered minorities "gifts." as if he didn't alienate hispanics enough wliel running. look
. hilary, you just heard the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal, he's very critical of mitt romney, the campaign he ran. what did you make of that? >> well, i think there's just a whole lot of distancing going on. pretty typical after a losing campaign. i thought, you know, governor jindal spoke well about some of the mistakes republicans have made. a little bit of a mixed message. i think this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in
into makers and to takers. this is a fantasy. we have a governor in this country who does some things and most of what mitt romney is objecting to is government. >> is there a government component here. mitt romney is talking about giving more tax breaks. >> paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion they've decided to carry on. they doesn't lose because their ideas were bad, they doesn't lose because of mistakes, they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it dwru into -- got into 51%. >> they are going to be dogged by comments like this. it's not inclusive. how. >> we have republicans across the country saying we have to reconnect and connect with people young. dollar this gave them. >> john nichols, great to you have with us tonight. thanks so much. >> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." >> in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young people and encourage people to come and when they come here to
